511-5OR: 115
8/11

Broke his duck over hurdles at the sixth attempt (second run for this yard) when an easy odds-on winner of a Uttoxeter maiden (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago; faces a stiffer test under a penalty.

510-12OR:
2/1

Driven out to floor the much more fancied Nobby and Imperial Alcazar in a 2m Listed bumper at Newbury (good to soft) in March; out of his depth in a Grade 1 NHF race at Punchestown subsequently; steps up in trip for hurdles debut.

610-12OR:
20/1

Winning Irish pointer (Aghabullogue); 40-1 when a remote second to The Butcher Said on hurdles debut in a 2m4½f Huntingdon maiden (good); an unlikely candidate.

510-12OR:

Shirocco gelding (well-related); weakened close home when no match for the 8L winner Montego Grey in a Market Rasen bumper (2m½f, good) in April; switches to hurdling at a reasonably realistic level.

Betting

Forecast

Mason Jar (8/11), Zyon (7/4), House Island (2/1), Top Man (14/1), Shah An Shah (14/1), Mister Murchan (20/1)

Verdict

The recent Uttoxeter maiden winner Mason Jar faces a stiffer task under a penalty, while Zyon has clearly taken time to develop for Paul Nicholls. Therefore, the more appealing option is probably the Paul Webber-trained HOUSE ISLAND who was a surprise 40-1 winner of a Listed bumper at Newbury in March. Nevertheless that opinion could be swayed should a barrage of market support arrive for the Nicholls-trained hurdling debutant.
